Dive Index works in true 21st century creative fashion, tapping into talent around the world by collaborating over the Internet. Frontman Will Thomas developed the musical concepts in New York and then emailed his geographically scattered vocalists and they exchanged parts of the music online. The music is diverse and not easily classified, but one hears a deep urban aesthetic across the varied grooves. While so much of this sounds polished, it does venture into the lo-fi end of things as one session took place in the changing room of a London boutique. The album from which this song “Cut” derives is titled The Surface We Divide and will be released 12 October via Neutral Music. Guest artists include Joseph Arthur, Mark Gardener (Ride), Cat Martino and Patrick Cooper. “Cut” is the dreamy and soulful debut single featuring Joseph Arthur.
